"Classical Electrodynamics and the Role of Consistency in Scientific Theorizing"

Abstract: "In this paper I investigate the conceptual structure of classical electrodynamics and argue that the standard version of the theory is mathematically inconsistent. This inconsistency, I argue, presents a challenge to a widely held view of scientific theories, which cannot account for inconsistent, yet successful theories."
